OFEM to be Read at the Los Angeles Theatre Center

I’m very excited to announce that my comedic monologue OFEM will be read at the Los Angeles Theatre Center on May 18th at noon, Pacific Standard Time. Sara Israel will serve as the director for my piece.

The event is the 2014 Female Playwrights Onstage Project –  National Festival of New Work. It will be live streamed by HowlRound. It is open to the public, and those in the Los Angeles area may make reservations through http://www.littleblackdressink.org. The address is 514 South Spring Street, Los Angeles. (213) 489-0994, http://www.latc.org.

Many thanks to Tiffany Antone, who created the event to highlight the work of female playwrights under the aegis Little Black Dress INK.

OFEM was read in a regional event on May 4th in an Ithaca, NY event held at Acting Out, produced by Darcy Rose. Professor Cynthia Henderson of Ithaca College directed my piece.

OFEM was in perfect keeping with this year’s theme – Planting the Seed. My character, Sally Parsons, is a farmer in Bucks County, PA, who is announcing a new initiative to take back the fields and farmer’s markets from what she views as an oppressive patriarchy. She makes a passionate speech to roll out the new food movement she has invented. You’ll have to watch online on May 18th to find out what it is. Suffice it to say that Sally is part Rosie the Riveter, part Emma Goldman, and part Susan B. Anthony. Her speech will leave you cheering and laughing.

Little Black Dress INK is an experiment in support, inspired by recent revelations in numbers on the subject of just how few female playwrights actually get produced. Through outreach, education, and producing opportunities, Little Black Dress INK strives to create more production opportunities for female playwrights while also strengthening the female playwright network.

DEELMAYKER – A staged reading near Dallas – tonight

Congratulations to Warren Bodow, whose play DEELMAYKER has won third place in the 3rd Annual McKinney Repertory Theatre’s New Play Competition. It will receive a reading tonight at 7:30pm in McKinney, Texas, just outside of Dallas. I have worked as Warren’s dramaturg to develop the comedy for the past two years. Previously, it received readings in New York City and Tucson, Arizona, before being chosen for this national award.

McKinney Repertory Theatre DEELMAYKER by Warren bodow

DEELMAYKER, the main character’s email address, features the loveable Bernie Harris, a successful 65-year-old media broker who wants to keep on truckin’ but is challenged by a client base that is shrinking and a business environment that is pushing him to the sidelines.  As he struggles to win the trust of a much younger client, and with problems in his marriage, Bernie strives to make the perfect deal, and learns if he has what it takes to face the new realities of a world growing young.
